Each track is a kind of dark folk minimalism, naked as a winter tree whose leaves fell months ago, where lonely guitar and piano chords play on, occasionally matched by violin or what could be a clarinet.

Failure - Akonit Cat.no.: SPNet141 A collection of soothing instrumental folk ballads - evokes in my mind images of laying on the grass and staring at the sky, somewhere in the middle of nowhere - or at least a place where anything else than 11 minutes of relax just doesn't matter.

Justin Coughmin of Hectic Head brings us an intimate folk-punk offering with his project Slave Ships of Despair. His Australian accent adds a pleasant touch to his sometimes quirky and sometimes irritable lyrics that make this album worth repeat listens. Truly this album brings back memories of sitting in living rooms and around camp fires with my friends, playing guitar and listening to their usually high-octain punk stylings in an unplugged and personal manner. SP is Flat Affect/Bastard... Topics: Folk, punk, Hectic Head, Justin Coughman, SPNet

Failure - Forest and Mountains EP Cat.no.: SPNet142 A short EP comprised of alternating phases of dark and unsettling black ambient and folk-ish ambiences. Ideal for winter field trips to woods! The black textures are predominant - you may close your eyes and imagine werewolves running across in packs, probably on a hunt, and moments of quiet consuming the prey while the music starts to be light. The best part is probably that every alternating part is different - there's no repeating motives... Topics: folk, ambient, black ambient, wall ambient, wall, dark ambient
